The opposite is true. The harder you work the more your workload will increase. Basically, you're getting punished while those who slack off continue to do what they always had. You end up doing your and their jobs while your pay remains the same... — read more
I know one young guy who applied for a job here. He doesn't have much experience, but he hopes to get a job. I do not want to demotivate anyone from coming here and giving it a go, after all he can always leave. However, I'm thinking is DQ now a... — read more
No cuts, but working here is becoming increasingly difficult... It doesn't mean much to me that my job is safe for a while, if in the meantime they put me under so much pressure that makes me want to get out of here. The fact that even those who used... — read more
I only got stress and lack of free time from doing overtime here because DQ often takes overtime for granted. I wonder how much overtime you do on average? (Primarily I mean overtime that doesn’t help you increase your income and that doesn’t help... — read more
Never looks good when a CFO resigns.
Have there been any new rumors on cuts?
I still haven’t been able to find a new job, but I’m trying to find something outside of this industry. Maybe I was overly enthusiastic when I expected it to become much better here after the vaccines largely put the pandemic under control?... — read more
Instead of fostering teamwork, management seems intent on rewarding those who will stop at nothing to get ahead. Basically, if you are not comfortable with backstabbing, don't expect to get ahead here. And yes, I'm bitter but I have every right to... — read more
It's become annoying to me how some people here pretend to be so busy. I mean, why is that? To look better? I don’t understand such people. I don’t know how DQ has become a company that values those who just pretend to work hard more than those who... — read more
Looks like the stock market don't have much faith in tweetie pie. Share prises plummeting every day. Hope the wage thief sold his shares before his announcement that he is to become a fulltime grape master.
Time to sell DQ
DQ management is in talks with major oilfield service company regarding acquisition of DQ…
Anyone know when the redundancies are happening?

I have been gone for a few months. I landed a really good job to advance my career. The only thing I’m grateful for is my team for giving me the knowledge and experience I am now using in my current position. Other than that, everything else was just... — read more
Realise that this is happening all across the industry, with oil companies putting a green spin on things, but DQ's recent marketing has been comical!
Heard that things are getting busier onwards and upwards bring on the overtime
Going by what’s on here I take it more payoffs to come ?
Prediction came true
I don't know what situation you're in, but I have very little work to do lately. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had less. Every day is a slow day. Some would say that's great, but I'm starting to get worried if it goes on like this. Looking at my... — read more
The best way to get our people to run faster is to pit them against each other. Rank them against one another - top 20% are the darlings, middle 70% are the worker bees, bottom 10% are the laggards. And if we keep at it year after year, they will... — read more
Still waiting on this so called redundancy letter that's meant to be coming everyone way. Looks like it's a pile of pish.
Been down cuz he stay down. Bend over the booboo and fa-t the stank out. Pride month baby. Meet me in the toilets.
A few years back I wouldn’t believe this company could be like it is today. I admire all the talented people who are still here and tolerate the charlatanry that some have established here as the norm. It seems to me that some people who are “very... — read more
Any news? Is everyone from Aberdeen going?
Does anyone have an annual retrospective of how many people have worked here say 5 years back? It would be interesting to see annual attrition data. My subjective feeling is that so many people have never left voluntarily as they have lately, so... — read more
I dont believe the layoffs are true. Not heard anything but rumours and nothing to back it up with.
Any truth to rumors about possible June layoffs?
I thought earlier that the story of the people employed here without being able to fulfill the job description was a bit exaggerated, until I got a colleague for whom it is by no means clear to me how he got the job here at all. I’m glad for everyone... — read more
Honestly you lot should go start your own companies, you all are obviously so intelligent since you know everything about how this company should operate. Get a grip, every oil company are in the same boat just now. Shut up, get on with your jobs... — read more
Blake knows how much Aberdeen can make he will save them from the bird man who dosent like Aberdeen he sees Aberdeen as a threat. Heard it from the horses mouth. We are 1 company
Coming very soon,maybe as early as summertime
Well done DQ we all knew you were innocent now we can thrive as a company
I think it will just be one or two more trips for us all before we get our redundancy letters.
It should be a movie like Wolf of Wall Street, except we see the Grapemaster making broken promises, lying to all his workers and holding garbage Christmas gathering in the back of a filthy building. It closes with him running the company into the... — read more
